PHS girls split two CCC contests

The PHS varsity girls basketball team split Clarence Cannon Conference games last week, downing Brookfield before losing to Macon.

The Lady Tigers trounced Palmyra, 56-21, in Macon Friday, shutting out the Lady Panthers 16-0 in the first quarter.

Palmyra’s Abbey Redd tries to keep possession of the ball during action against Brookfield last Tuesday.

Palmyra out-scored Macon 12-7 in the second quarter, before the Lady Tigers took control with a 33-9 second-half run.

Abby Redd sank three field goals and Palmyra’s only free throw to lead the team with seven points, while Grace Krigbam hit three field goals for six points.

Also scoring were Rylie McKinney, Taytum White, Candra King and Ashley Bode, all with two.

The Lady Panthers pulled out a 36-32 win at home over Brookfield to start the week last Tuesday.

The Lady Panthers led 13-7 early but went into half time up by just one. And it remained that close until the final minute when Palmyra turned it into a two possession game.

White sank three of four free throws and a field goal to account for five of the team’s eight fourth-quarter points, and lead all scorers with 12 total points.

Also scoring for Palmyra were Krigbaum, nine, McKinney, seven, Redd, two, Maura Gottman, two, Mallory Sublette, two, and Candra King, two.

The Lady Panthers were scheduled to continue Clarence Cannon Conference action this week at home against Clark County, Tuesday, and at Macon, Friday.
